Upgraded mall munchies
If the heaviest exercise you did during the recent holiday season involved walking around the mall and looking for a new pair of Nike shoes, you might decide to increase your monthly visits to the gym. Or you could just revisit Arden Fair mall once Seasons 52 (1689 Arden Way, Suite 1065) opens on Monday, January 28, since no dish on its menu contains more than 475 calories. The restaurant chain is headquartered in Orlando, Fla., and is owned by Darden Restaurants, the same company that operates Olive Garden and Red Lobster. Seasons 52’s self-described “sophisticated” menu boasts seasonal dishes and an extensive wine list handpicked by master sommelier George Miliotes. While it’s not groundbreaking to find a new chain restaurant inside a mall, at least dishes such as cedar-plank-roasted salmon and goat-cheese ravioli are an upgrade from the food served at mall staples such as Hot Dog on a Stick or Sbarro.
